O.C./State briefs: Computer glitch no Rx for customers June 23, 2000

Customers at Sav-on drug stores had trouble getting their prescriptions this week as the store installed a new computer system to combine the pharmacies of Sav-on and Albertson's Inc.

Stores were accepting cash only for prescriptions because the computers were down.

Computers at the 75 Orange County stores and others throughout the state were taken down Tuesday, said Albertson's spokeswoman Judy Decker. She said the computers were back online Wednesday, though some customers had problems as late as Thursday morning.

In June 1999, Albertson's Inc. merged with American Stores Company, the parent company of Sav-on drug stores.
